I just wanted to share a project I've been working on. It really surprised me when I learned that this has been circulating the gaming blogs but wanted to share it here.
Here's a picture of a 3D printing I made of Atlas. It was done in the basic nylon material Shapeways uses (they call it White, Strong and Flexible). I then sanded it by hand, painted the pieces, added some decals, assembled the parts and then finally wired up a very basic LED circuit in the eye and elbow to give Atlas a bit more life
I plan to finish this off with a portal base in the future once things have settled down (got a busy few months ahead of me unfortunatly).
If you're interested in reading a bit on how I went about making this, I've documented it over on my blog (psychobobarts.blogspot.co.uk or psychobob.co.uk. Direct link to the post is Psychobob Arts: 3D Print: Atlas (Portal) Part1). Now all I need to do is learn how to make this without 3D printing so it's cheaper!
